Yesterday we were able to host our first proper event since before the pandemic, in aid of Volunteers Week 2021, where we celebrated our wonderful staff and volunteers who make such a difference to our clients- as a result everyone was very excited in the run up to the event!
Our clients at Verdant Lane made such an amazing effort when it came to this celebration, with our lovely volunteers on hand to help too, so a real team effort by everyone involved.
We had DJ Bigzy on the music (aka Paul P), Nat and Jo on Smoothies, Michael T on BBQ and Scott running anywhere and everywhere helping out.
We thanked all of our volunteers with a ‘Thank You’ certificate, and ate lots delicious food! The atmosphere was fantastic, aided by (finally!) great weather, and it was some much-needed normality after a difficult year for many.
Our volunteers regularly throw events and seasonal celebrations for our clients, along with other activities such as cooking, gardening, walks and art sessions- you can watch just some of what we do in the video below:
